I do believe in spin drift and corialis. I don't see how that can be the problem if your left 3/4 of an inch at 100 yards at 200 your sighted in and at 400 your right 4 inches already.

x 2 on that. Same thing I said a few replys ago 4.75 inches in 300 yds is a little much for drift
I would say something is not set up quite right just yet

Re: Long Range shots - elevation right on always to the right

UPdate: first of all, thanks to all that have put your 2 cents worth in, I have learned allot through this process. i do have a Holland level on my scope and use it for every shot.
I will be going out tommorrow morning. I have rezeroed my scope for 300 yards with elevation and turret right on. Going to shoot 400, 500 yards tommorrow before it gets too hot. Been 100 degrees here and will be going out early. I will keep you posted.

Thank god I reload, this would cost me a fortune if I was buying ammo at $68 a box.

Hey, did you ever get enough trigger time in on the range to figure out the source of your rightward drift? Curious minds here... Thanks,
